From the time you enter the building, you know that Tapestry has an arts focus. The walls are protruding with art projects. Around every corner, there is something new to discover. Their new space allows them limitless possibilities.

The focus is present due to the dedication of the Director of Arts Education, Hannah Raiken-Schulman, who has helped to finalize classroom needs that include a new dance studio, music room, and visual arts space.

Recently, I had a chance to visit the new Tapestry Charter High School with Allie Friedman from Buffalo ReformEd. In a little less than a year after it started, construction on the high school is complete. By the time we visited, it seemed like everyone had settled in. This new facility comes complete with an expanded library, MAC computer lab, new gymnasium, and plenty of space to hang the artwork. There are also some surprises along the way, such as a dance studio and a cafeteria with a theater space to help students engage in the visual arts, media and technology, dance, writing, music and theater.
